Welcome!

West Midlands Senior Special #1

West Midlands Senior Special

We’re delighted to partner with Age Concern Birmingham to bring you this special edition of Your Health Choices Magazine, created uniquely for senior members of the community. Our aim is to provide a wealth of useful, enjoyable, encouraging and inspiring information on themes and issues that are relevant to your everyday lives.


Our feature articles span a range of interesting topics, from healthcare and vitality to community services, and appear alongside practical information on local tradespeople, charities and events.

Our inspiration for creating the senior issue was recognising the need for information spanning so many relevant themes to be bought together collectively in one place. We hope that you will like the magazine and find it useful both now and in the future.


 On behalf of the teams  at Your Health Choices and Age Concern Birmingham, we wish you a very warm welcome and hope you enjoy reading the magazine!
